Then and Now

Saturday, April 28, 2007
My garden plot has really come alive in the past two months. Here is a photo of how it looked in February...

And this is what it looks like now...

On the right side are the garlics. On the left side, you can see the strawberries spilling over the bed. (Spill away, strawberries, spill away! The more, the merrier!) Behind those, I have Red Russian Kale, carrots, two pepper plants I just put in, arugula that's going to seed, and onions. At the end of the path is a San Marzano tomato plant -- a.k.a, the source of a future batch of fresh tomato sauce.

All I can say is WOW!! It's been much too wet here to get things planted. Hopefully we'll do it by Monday or Tuesday, if we don't get any more rain.

What a difference longer hours of sunshine and warmer temperatures make. Your garden looks wonderful ... those garlic are huge and the strawberries look as if they are going to yield an excellent crop!

Transformations in the garden. Everything leaping out of the ground. And just think it will all start picking up the pace as the Spring settles in - don't you love it? Great pictures.

That 2 month's growth is amazing. I am making your husband's tomato sauce recipe today (which looks/sounds mouth watering)and will use in my eggplant Parmesan today, and the pizzas I will make during the week.

Your garden is lovely, and I'm glad to have stumbled across your blog. I'm a veggie-gardener newbie, long-time eater, and former DC resident, so your site appeals to me on many levels.

Wow... everything looks so fresh and green! My garlics are almost that tall, too--I can't wait until I harvest them. It will be my first garlic harvest ever.

Much better and in such a short time too. I've got garlic and stawberries in my kitchen garden too, can't do without them.
